THE SINNER by Ustad Abdul Hadee (04.07.11)

-- if the heart is covered with sin, and corruption : and placed in a society where Iblees is in charge : all the limbs will follow and the heart will be confirming what the body is upon
-- we see, the mother wearing jilbab and niqaab . but the daughter is barely dressed
-- we live in a society where its not a problem if people abuse their own bodies

-- from morning till night : they please Iblees.

"There is a lump of flesh within the body. When it is sound, the whole body is sound. But if it is corrupt, the whole body is corrupt. Indeed it is the heart (al-Qalb)" Bukhari and Muslim

-- we have situations in schools and universities: workplaces, free mixing : the sin have become so insignificant
-- listening to music is so popular : the heart has become black and even more black : that it does not know the truth : and falls into haram
-- how is one who does not establish salah, a connection with Allah supposed to make correct relationships with the people

The tongue that is created to worship Allah, has now become the weapon of Iblis!!

-- they have trophies, for "actors" who are trained to lie..
-- Now they have Trophy & prices, for those who are lying.
-- Politics - Lying, cheating, etc.
-- the politicians are more deserving of these trophies
-- think about politics : you think about lies, and betrayal
-- there is no Islam without politics : we have to involve in looking after the people
-- Politics in Islam is to take care of people, their food, shelter, etc.
-- to command the good & forbid the evil, is politics in Islam!
-- our politics is : to command the good and forbid the evil
-- Umar ibn Al Khattab said : if poverty was a man I would kill him
-- we always make dua : Allah give us good in the dunya and the akhirah
-- Gheebah : eating the flesh of your Muslim brothers/sisters : why not..
-- the magazines are giving good examples : gossip and revealing their lives
-- amongst the Muslims this act has become so light
-- Prophet (pbuh) was angry towards those who backbite the people!
-- the sins of society today : we are in pitch black : DARKNESS
-- no matter which direction you look , there is no light
Anas said: you do things in your eyes, is like a hair

--but in the time of the Messenger we would consider them enough to destroy a man
-- the dust of the rebellion to Allah : has affected everyone
-- Unlike today... we do all that is forbidden & haram & have become hard to abstain from it.
-- Anas ibn malik said it at a time when there was an Islamic State : Imagine us now...
-- now to speak about good is an evil : but to speak about the evil is a good !!!
-- The corruption around us has become insignificant to us now.
-- for the youth : what kind of society are they growing up in
-- everything is geared towards taking the person away from Jennah
-- the youth are people of Jennah , born on fitrah
-- when you held a baby, do you imagine they have any sins : you do not allocate any of the sins to the baby : its upon fitrah

Every child is born on Fitrah, then the parents turn the child into a Jew or a Christian. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 1292)

-- many Muslims expose their children how to be the perfect kaafir : the opium of the western society : the jahil practices like birthdays : and xmas

The Nabi (saws) said: No child is born except according to his true and upright nature (Islam). It is his parents who make him a Jew or Christian or a Magian (Pagan). (Sahih Muslim Vol 4, pg 1398)

-- you try to advise them : they make some excuses for their sins. : weakness : when I become old I will change :
-- They use the justification, like everyone else does it!
-- For them its just the fact that as long as I said the Shahadah, I will enter paradise!
-- they even try to use the Quran and Sunnah : like : " laa ilaha ila Allah is the key to paradise "
-- they become a kaafir without knowing : sisters hijab : brothers beard

Allah had given us the Quran, its that which needs to be taken care of, notice of, not a book of amusement!
-- Allah gave us the Quran, : it is not an amusement
-- Look at the situation now... Quran has become something that is like for the Museum.
-- there are 100x 1000 copies of the Quran : in Madinah : how many times someone has taken a verse and made sure they implemented the verse
-- The sin is something that should not be taken lightly, even the minor sin!
--- sin : rebellion to Allah : if the minor sins were gathered together : would be enough to destroy a person

"Beware of minor sins. For they add on until they destroy the man."

-- we focus in our hearts : we will go to Jennah : we will see the rivers

-- we imagine the Ahadith of Jannah : but these great things are FAR AWAY FROM THE SINNER !
-- Ask yourself, are you from the people of paradise? what deed have you done? think about it yourself!
-- ask yourself : which of your shoulders are heavier ?
-- If you put your good deeds on one side of the scale & the bad on the other, which do you think will be heavier?
-- you have an angel on each side : recording your deeds

Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The believer regards his sin as if he were sitting beneath a mountain which he fears may fall on him, whereas the sinner regards his sin as if a fly lands on his nose and he swipes it away.”

-- beware of minor sins, for they will pile up until they destroy a person
-- how dangerous to you is a grain of sand : make it 2, 3, 15, 1000 : keep adding : it will become a desert !
-- Because you will be brought to account for them!
-- people of 'ad and Thamud : these people were so mighty : where are they now?
-- What guarantee do we have that Allah will not destroy a society that is filled with evil & haram!
-- Where is the pure line you want to look for... even Makkah, the most scared city, is now being ruled by the Tyrant!
-- where is that pure land that you want now?
-- Makkah the sacred city : has become dar al kufr : we have leaders who are kaafirs : aiding the kuffar against the Muslims, signing up for UN, killing mujahideen : its land of fasad
-- when you speak to the people; they say they are oppressed
-- Bro met people there not locals, even though they have been living there forever, yet they can’t get the citizen ship.
-- you cannot work there and live there without manager over you : they become enslaved
-- When we think about the Sin, its indeed effecting the east & west.
-- Allah said: corruption is spread in the land and the sea, because of what the people have done with their own hands
-- Even the best of the best people, they were concerned about their sins.

Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The believer regards his sin as if he were sitting beneath a mountain which he fears may fall on him, whereas the sinner regards his sin as if a fly lands on his nose and he swipes it away.”


-- how many mountains above our heads ?
-- When the companions used to think about their sin, they used to think about mountains upon them.
-- what have we done; ask and continue asking yourself; account yourself before the day of accountability
-- Man is so ungrateful to Allah, that he continues to sin.
-- we have 2 angels recording our deeds : nothing will be missed
(Remember!) that the two receivers (recording angels) receive (each human being), one sitting on the right and one on the left (to note his or her actions) (50:17)

-- On that day the Earth will testify what you did on the land, your body, your clothes, your leg, etc... all will testify against you or for you.



-- if tomorrow you had your "visa" to paradise, how would you act : you would relax?
-- & yet when Umar Khattab got the glad tiding he was still considered.
-- Abu Bakr was given the glad tidings : he was still concerned that one of his feet would fall out (of Jennah)
-- people think there is no hope
-- Allah is Al Ghafur Al Raheem : Al Haqq : even if we did so much sin there is still hope
-- Look at the life of Prophet (pbuh), he had years to establish the truth, working for the Deen.
-- after achieving all of the victories : * the last verse was 5:3
This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour unto you, and have chosen for you as religion AL-ISLAM. (5:3)
-- but the last chapter was Surah Nasr 110
When Allah's succour and the triumph cometh (1) And thou seest mankind entering the religion of Allah in troops, (2) Then hymn the praises of thy Lord, and seek forgiveness of Him. Lo! He is ever ready to show mercy. (3) (an Nasr)
-- the last three commandments : make tasbeeh : praise Allah : and ask for forgiveness
-- after long days and nights of sin : if you do this Allah accepts the repentance
-- this is the Mercy of Allah

The last Surah revealed to Prophet (pbuh) gave him hope

-- that indeed Allah is all forgiving.
-- you may have done sins that are like mountains : or the size of the earth or beyond !
-- Allah is the One who Accepts your tawba
-- why should Allah forgive you : for all the corruption : if you do not ask for forgiveness

“One of the people of Hell who found most pleasure in the life of this world will be brought forth on the Day of Resurrection and will be dipped into the Fire of Hell. Then he will be asked, ‘O son of Adam, have you ever seen anything good?’ Have you ever enjoyed any pleasure?’ He will say, ‘No, by God, O Lord.” (50:51)

-- That person who will be dip once in hellfire on Akhirah, will not remember any enjoyment of this Dunya.

Announce, (O Muhammad) unto My slaves that verily I am the Forgiving, the Merciful, (50:49)

-- after a heart which has become paralyzed with sin
-- after all the sin , and disobedience : look how Allah tells us He IS Forgiving, the Merciful,
-- Say to My servants who have transgressed their own souls : do not despair in the Mercy of Allah

Say: O My slaves who have been prodigal to their own hurt! Despair not of the mercy of Allah, Who forgiveth all sins. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. (39:53)

-- we should not lose hope in Allah : rather He has given us a lifetime of chances to repent
-- the scribe : the recorder of the sins : delays the recording for 6 hours * and if you repent it will not be recorded

-- if we don’t, there is no hope
-- amongst you are those who desire this world and those who desire the aakhirah
-- so make tasbeeh and Tamheed and istighfar


"I am unable to control myself from sinning. Please give me something to help me refrain from it”.
“If you accept Five conditions and are able to put them into practice, your disobedience will not cause you any problem”. “Just tell me what they are”, the man said.

“The First is that when you want to disobey Allah (S.W.T), you do not eat anything He provides”.
“Then how will I get anything to eat? Everything on the earth is from Him”

See bottom of notes for the story :

-- Even Umar Khattab became the best of the best after his acceptance to Islam.
-- Though he was the worst in Jahiliyya.
-- if we give up the sin, and we make tawba and istighfar. Allah will forgive us
-- we live in a society full of evil :
-- we will continue to be bombarded with temptations
-- we need to change our society :
-- The Salaf were upon that - Protect the society so you can protect yourself!

"You prefer the worldly life (to the Akhirah) whereas the Hereafter is best and everlasting." (Surah A'laa)


How do I stop sinning?

Al Hussayn was approached by a man who wanted to stop his sins. He asked for advice that will help him realize the consequences of his actions. He was told:

If you want to disobey Allah, you can, in 5 cases:

1- If you want to disobey Allah, then don't eat from His rizq (provision.)
The man said: Then where am I to eat when every provision is from Allah?

Al Hussayn said: O such a person! Is it honourable and good to disobey Allah, and eat from His provision?
The man said: give me the second one.

2- If you want to disobey Allah, then do not live on Allah's property.
The man said: Then where am I to live if not on Allah's property?

Al Hussayn said: Is it good then, to eat from His provision, live on His property, and disobey Him?
The man said: Give me the third one.

3- If you want to disobey Allah, then disobey Him in a place where He will not see you.
The man said: How am I to do this when He not only sees what others see, but what is in the hearts?

Al Hussayn said: o you such a person, how do you eat from His provision, live on His property, and disobey Him openly?
The man said: Give me the fourth one.

4- If you want to disobey Allah, when the Angel of Death comes to you, tell him to come back later, after you repent.
The man said: He will not accept this from me!

Al Hussayn said: O you such a person, when you cannot delay death, how do you expect a saviour?
The man said: Give me the fifth.

5- If you want to disobey Allah, then after death comes to you, on the Day of Judgement, when the Angels of Hell come to drag you into Hell, refuse to go with them.
The man said: They will not accept that from me!

Al Hussayn said: Then how do you expect to be saved?
The man said: Enough! Enough! I seek forgiveness in Allah and make taw bah! AstaghfirAllah wa i'tubuu alayk!

He made sincere tawbah, and left all his acts of disobedience, and he died in such a state.
